Overview

Overview

Tulum House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Tucked in amongst the palms, in front of the sea, Casita Bonita is perfectly placed and proportioned to suit its environment. Soft sensuous lines give this modern post and beam home a clean, breezy, tropical feel.

With 2 floors, palapa roof, 1 ½ bedrooms and 2 baths, Casita Bonita is small enough to feel cozy, yet large enough for intimate dinner parties. Open the 4 beautiful glass doors to the front terrace and let in the dappled sunlight in the morning and the starlight at night.

Behind the kitchen is a small, open room with a queen bed. It’s the perfect place to curl up for an afternoon siesta, watch a video or invite a friend to spend the night.

Climb the indoor staircase with its inset lighting to the gorgeous, spacious and very sexy master bedroom under the palapa roof. Slide open the 4 large glass doors to your private balcony fronting the sea. Let the sounds of the ocean and the rustle of the palms sooth you to sleep.

Excellent cross ventilation and ceiling fans make this house easy to live in, even in the hottest weather. Tasteful, decorative lighting creates warm intimate spaces throughout the house. A private pathway thru the greenery leads to your own palapa beach umbrella just 30’ in front of the Casita. The house has 24 hour electricity and wifi.

Casita Bonita is a treat, a joy and a delight to spend time in. We know you’ll enjoy your stay.

About Snow Colbeck

Bob and Bonnie live in the majestic mountains of beautiful British Columbia Canada and on the gorgeous beach of fun and funky Tulum, Mexico.

Snow Colbeck purchased this house in 2002

Why Snow Colbeck chose Tulum

We bought this property as raw land in 2002. We built our first dream home - Casa de Las Palmas in 2008. In 2011 we built a 2nd smaller home, perfect for two. For the first 7 years we lived very close to the land in big tents and a small kitchen trailer, sharing paradise with our family and friends. Our guests feel our deep love, respect and connection to our land the moment they leave their cars and walk down the beautiful sand pathways thru our small palm forest on the way to their home. We enjoyed designing and building our two homes. We took advantage of the ability to 'bend' cement and thus created two unique homes with many curvaceous, sensuous lines. They give the homes a modern, clean, and sensuous feel.

What makes this house unique

Casita Bonita is a small, intimate home on one of the 5 most beautiful beaches in the world. Bright, sunny and private, the house is alive with warmth, light and colour. When the glass doors to the front are opened, you are connected to the beach in a magical way. Up the stairs in the stunning, private, romantic bedroom the rest of the world drops away and it is just the two of you alone with the sounds of the sea and the rustle of the palms to sooth, entice and envigorate you.

PERFECT LITTLE SPOT IN HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
This was our first stay at Casa Bonita and before our stay was over, we were booking our next stay.
This property is the perfect location on the beach road.... The home itself is creatively decorated and cleverly constructed. Laying on the beach is 3 seconds away....With it literally being less than 20 steps from the house step to the beach lounge chair. The property itself has great energy and the people who care for it are very kind and helpful. We will back again and again!

Casita Bonita is our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
Tulum is our favorite vacation destination and we are so happy to have found Casita Bonita! I would consider ourselves independent travelers. We prefer to rent privately owned properties and explore a city on our own, hanging out where locals do versus staying at all-inclusive resorts and going on group tours.

We’ve rented Casita Bonita twice and consider it our home away from home. From the planning and reservations to the check-in and departure, the owners and management are helpful and go out of their way to make your stay as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. The kitchen is fully-equipped and there’s a BBQ grill in case you feel like cooking. And one of the best amenities is the private palapas, beach loungers, boogie boards, kayaks, and outdoor showers. Bonus: there were plenty of sand toys for our 3 yr old son!

We love the location of this house, especially because it’s situated on a very large white sand beach, in a convenient area just walking distance from all the cool restaurants and boutiques like La Troupe, Simple, Casa Banana, La Zebra, Hartwood, Casa Jaguar, just to name a few.

The beds are super comfortable and they provide high-quality linens and towels. The house and grounds are very well-maintained. The groundskeepers did a great job of cleaning the beach (removing kelp/ seaweed) every morning and housekeepers are friendly and keep the house fresh and clean.

I highly recommend Casita Bonita for families with 1-2 kids, friends or two couples sharing who want to truly experience paradise with a laid, back vibe.

I highly recommend Casita Bonita for families with 1-2 kids, friends or two couples sharing who want to truly experience paradise with a laid, back vibe -- with all the creature comforts you can imagine. There is air conditioning but with the ocean breeze, who needs it?

Also, here's a tip: there are 2 other rentals on the same property so if you have a larger group, you can try to rent out the whole property and have a big family reunion or vacation with friends.

Lovely slice of heaven!!

  • 4 of 5
My daughter and I found this lovely little slice of heaven at the very last minute. What a joy! Both the owner and the on site manager were so very accommodating. I think I could live in this house! It's in the perfect location- my favorite part of the beach in Tulum- close to everything I need and want. The only things that could've been better were: AC (it's VERY hot- especially in the little downstairs bed). A floor fan helped a bit. And there is construction going on right now just 10 feet away on a wellness center/hotel. It was very frustrating to hear banging and hammering all day (although the on site manager Caty did ask them to work on the other side when we expressed our frustration). Construction is supposed to be done by November FYI. The house is designed to be very comfy- with lots of little spots to sit, read, relax- Views were lovely. The upstairs master suite is divine and it was fun meeting the people who were renting the other 2 houses on the property. La zebra hotel is close to grab a drink (although note that they have salsa nights on Sunday - and the music will blast through the house until 11pm). Also Casa Banana is right there, and my fav yoga spot & pizza place are right down the road. Walk to everything. My daughter found the downstairs bed to be very uncomfortable, but the day we left, they changed the mattresses so likely that won't be an issue anymore. It's nice that they had bikes & kayaks to use. I hope I can go again and stay for 2-4 weeks- so I can really just relax. We were in and out in 4 days this time. If you are considering renting this house - absolutely grab it if you can!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are happy you enjoyed your time at Casita Bonita. The downstairs bed has been replaced and is now very comfortable. We are sorry for any disruption you experienced from next door - the project is scheduled to be competed by September. In the meantime we are doing our best to minimize the impact on our guests. We look forward to having you come back and stay at our "little slice of
heaven".

House of Paradise

  • 5 of 5
With some hesitation over it becoming too popular, I have to say Casita Bonita is everything we could have hoped for and more. We have stayed at other locations along the beach in Tulum over the years but this house far exceeds our other experiences. This house was carefully designed to fit comfortably and beautifully on this site, literally just a few steps from one of the very best beaches in the world. The home's organic, flowing interior is artistic, attractive and calming since it so perfectly blends with its idyllic surroundings. The open-air patio on the first level extends from the main living/ kitchen area via several large folding doors that swing out to make a great indoor/outdoor "room" for morning coffee, meals, and evening drinks while watching the beach and the sea. Our two older kids slept in the downstairs bedroom and were very happy with their arrangement and separate bathroom with shower. The 2nd level is like a dream with a very roomy and romantic built-in king bed, large patio, and full bath. Wonderful lighting throughout the house but especially so on this level. Even the bedside lighting and outlets have been placed thoughtfully. Although the temperature was in the low 90's most days, the home was always very comfortable with only the cooling ocean breeze and ceiling fans. 

Our family of four enjoyed our one week stay at Casita Bonita immensely; we wished we could have stayed much longer. No complaints whatsoever, only the highest rating for this wonderful place!  We hope to return again often. We were luckily enough to meet owner Bob before we left--his obvious love for the area and care about the happiness of everyone especially visitors to his homes really reinforces why this is such a special and wonderful place to stay. 

Also wanted to mention the property manger Ale was a delight, she seemed most interested in making sure our stay was perfect and trouble-free. The cleaning / maintenance staff is great as well, available if needed, but we never had any problems since they somehow made sure the grounds, beach, and house were in perfect shape and freshly cleaned daily without any feeling of interruption or "intrusion" on this piece of true paradise.

Beach house of my dreams!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I came to the casita in August of 2012, and I really can't imagine a better place we could have stayed. It's more beautiful than the pictures, if that is possible. The house opens up to the beach and there is an amazing breeze that just takes over the whole house. We were in perfect walking distance to most things that we needed. The house is across the street from our favorite restaurant, Hartwood, simply amazing food and atmosphere. I can't recommend Tulum more, I know we will be back. It was everything I could have ever wanted in a beach house, and I can promise we will never stay anywhere else while we are in Tulum. Thank you Bob and Bonnie! (and Maria?!) Love, Lauren and Adam from Brooklyn, NY!
